Other than the couple of minor points above, the cottage was EXCELLENT - absolutely lovely, well appointed, warm, cosy, comfortable, well furnished and spotless. We had all we needed and the owners were so kind, helpful, thoughtful, welcoming. Very kind to provide cake for our arrival. It was just perfect and a really lovely holiday. Can't rate it highly enough. Such a lovely place and lovely people. I will be going back and booking again.

Sorry about the travel directions. Because the majority of guests arrive from the North we haven't added directions from the South, but we'll look into it. Glad you had a good stay though.

We had a fantastic stay. Kate and Andrew were very welcoming and we felt that our comfort was their priority and we were made to feel that we could go and ask them if we had any needs or requests. The cottage is beautiful, comfortable, spacious but cosy, and well-equipped. It is in a lovely peaceful location, with lovely walks from the doorstep, we particularly enjoyed a visit to Cotehele , plus the lovely town of Tavistock is close enough to visit by car. There are lots of other lovely places to visit nearby, we particularly enjoyed Dartmoor and the Rame Peninsula, especially Rame Head and the lovely coastal towns of Kingsand and Cawsand. Polperro and Looe also worth a visit. Thank you, a perfect place to celebrate my 50th birthday.

Lovely well equipped and very comfortable cottage in a great location for beautiful walks, especially if you have a dog with you - but also a good base for seeing the surrounding area. There is a very nice enclosed cottage garden that is for your private use and loads of parking. Superb owners on the farm, to which the cottage adjoins, who are friendly and helpful but not obtrusive at all. This is one of the best holiday houses we and our friends, who visited for a few days, have ever rented and we would highly recommend it.

July 2017

The cottage location was very rural which suited us down to the ground as we have two dogs. In terms of home comforts the cottage was brilliant. Bathrooms had been re-furbished recently and were very clean and smart. Beds were very comfortable as were the sofas, which is something you don't find everywhere. Andrew and Kate could not have been more helpful if they tried. Apart from the weather,a great experience and one we will certainly repeat.

May 2017

We had a very enjoyable stay in a cottage we would use again.

April 2017

We have a great Easter at Comfort Wood Cottage. Mr&Mrs Brown very kind and nice people. We love to back in Cornwall.

April 2017

If you want a place to stay that is secluded, tranquil and peaceful then this is for you. The owners are very welcoming and helpfull. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever had. It was Clean and tidy. We were unable to walk to the closest pub as it is across the field, but it is walkable we couldnt as we had a pushchair. We loved the open space beyond the garden (usable with permission by the owners of the property). Garden was a good size for the kids to run around in. We can't wait to go back.

May 2015

Lovely cottage in beautiful location. Excellent walks and lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. Kate and Andrew very welcoming and we loved the practical bee keeping demonstration and tour of the farm. We will definitely be returning!

May 2015

Had a wonderful stay at this fabulous cottage. Very spacious and comfortable, equipped with everything one might need. Andrew and Kate are so welcoming and hospitable - we felt at home immediately. There are lovely walks right on the doorstep and plenty of places to visit within easy distance. Absolutely first rate and highly recommended.

Deborah Beaumont was quick, efficient and very helpful when booking the cottage.

November 2014

This is a WONDERFUL cottage in a perfect location. Andrew & Kate are perfect hosts. We love it.

September 2014

We had a fantastic family holiday at Comfort Wood...beautiful location which was ideal for exploring all over Cornwall and Devon whilst giving us plenty of space away from the crowds. Kate and Andrew the owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcomed us to explore their land and see their animals. High standard all round and perfect for a family with a dog.

September 2013

We really liked Comfort Wood Cottage and had the most restful relaxing week there. The walk to the Cotehele Estate was lovelyl as was the National Trust property. So pleased we gave Toad Hall a second chance after the less than perfect week at Rock Lea, Aveton Gifford last year. The properties could not have been more different. It was a part of Cornwall that none of us had visited before and an area we hope to visit again in the future. Thank you so much for a perfect break. Comfort Wood Cottage is most certainly a wonderful hidden gem.

<p> We&#39;re so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Comfort Wood Cottage, it is a fantastic property! And you&#39;ll be happy to know that Rock Lea is no longer on our books...!</p>
